Sunshine Knitting Kit - Stylecraft Special Chunky

If you'd like to bring a bit of sunshine into your life, you can knit one with this kit! The finished size would be similar to the chunky version I knitted in Rico Merino Mega Chunky, which is featured in the second image, but the knit would be a lighter colour. 

This kit now has an optional printed paper pattern, if you'd like one included in your kit. If not, you can view the knitting pattern on our blog for free here. You can also choose whether you'd like your kit to include knitting needles or not.
